I’m getting to an age where I want to get my dream car and what I have always loved is the Lotus as I’ve followed them for years. I’ve watched all the launches and each year attended the motor-show to see what is new. I particularly liked the latest version of the Lotus Elise so I price it up and found that it came in at around £35,000 which was a little bit of a stretch for me but I thought it would be ok with a lotus finance deal.
I am really pleased with my purchase the Elise is really light on the road but that doesn’t mean I feel like I’m leaving the road when taking bends as there is plenty of grip and traction. I’ve found that although there is only a 1.6 litre engine it doesn’t lack any power and Toyota has got it right as the smaller engine is ample for the weight of the car. An added bonus of the smaller engine is that it is really cost effective so I don’t mind getting it out of the garage every day as it is not going to cost me a tank of fuel just to go to the shops.
My Lotus Finance contract
The Lotus Finance package that I chose was an hire purchase deal that allowed me to make regular payments over 48 months and then at the end make a larger payment to pay the car off. As I knew that by the end of the 48 months I had my retirement package coming out I chose this option. However I wouldn’t advise anyone to do this if they didn’t have the security of knowing that there would be money available to pay off the final amount. I think it would have spoiled the pleasure of driving around in such a stunning car if I was worrying about paying it off at the end of the 48 months.
If you are looking to get a sports car that is really classy I would really recommend the Lotus Elise 2015 model. Personally I wouldn’t drive any other sports car.
